The Humane Society's mission is to find loving homes for pets in need. The society opened the Planned Pethood Clinic to reduce the numbers of animals brought to shelters each year. Planned Pethood has provided over 45,500 spay and neuter surgeries.
The clinic is open Tuesday through Friday from 7:45 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. Appointments can be scheduled on Mondays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The adoption center provides a second chance for many animals and has provided care for more than 7,750 animals so far.
The adoption center is open Tuesday through Friday from 12 to 6 p.m. and on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
